I help run a large photography community and several of our members are trying to use the .photography domain for their website list in their profile, but receive a message saying the website is invalid. The format that is being attempted looks like this.
But this is the error message that is received.
I’ve looked for a setting or something that would allow this type of domain, but I couldn’t find anything. How could support be added for the .photography domain?
@RGJ I am not sure that we want to update to the beta until it is released since it sounds like it is around the corner. Would it be possible to mark our account to be updated once it is released? Thanks.
OK so I had a look through the previous commits and realized that what we initially wanted to do is to validate the format of the URL. That means that there is no need for us to care about whether the URL would return a valid HTTP response as that would require a different solution if we wanted to verify that.
However, I did noticed that our UrlValidator wasn’t handling a bunch of cases properly and that has been fixed in
I’ve also switched the validation for UserProfile#website to use our UrlValidator which removes the Regexp that has been quite problematic for us
